Saturday, October 7, 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
at the Gualala Arts Center
Matrix of Change and Gualala Arts proudly
present the 2006 Earth Fair in the Coleman Auditorium.
This year, Earth Fair will conduct one workshop
and one forum. One will be on solar energy and the other
on growing your own food.
The solar energy workshop will focus on teaching
the attendee to identify the system components needed and
how to do the preliminary research and design for a cost-
effectiveness evaluation on the type of system desired.
As October has been declared "Eat Local Foods
Month," we will celebrate by holding The First Annual
Farmers Forum. It is designed as a panel discussion with
reference displays, and will focus on what it takes to start
and maintain a personal or community garden.
Those attending the Earth Fair workshop and
forum will be given several opportunities to view the
Earth Fair's focus is Sustainability and Local Self-
sufficiency. Each year we bring to the public displays,
vendors, and educational opportunities focusing on solar
energy, energy conservation, environmental issues, goods
produced locally, and community support organizations.
The opening ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. with
the blessing of the fair. Displays, vendors, and workshops
will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will carry on as late as 3:00 p.m.
There is no entry fee, but we will let your conscience be your
guide as to the size of your donation based on your Earth
